References welcome :)

Hi everyone. I'm located in SE Michigan. Basically, I am looking for a birth attendant/midwife who would agree to do 2 to 3 basic prenatal exams, a basic postpartum exam, and to either be on-call nearby or be at my home but not in the same room with me during a birth.

 

My husband and I are really leaning toward a UC. We lost our first child in 2009, but elected to have an unassisted miscarriage at home. That was a spontaneous decision, spurred on by different factors, but he and I have NEVER regretted it. In fact, he is the only person I ever would've wanted with me, and the experience really brought us closer together.

 

I would really appreciate any references/suggestions that anyone out there might have. I want someone who is VERY hands-off and non-interventive. In short, someone who would agree to be there just in case of a complication or emergency.

 

Also, my husband and I are planning on doing a lot of the prenatal care (urine checks for sugar/protein, blood pressure readings, fundal height measurements, etc.) ourselves.

 

Thanks in advance.
